This comment in particular shows some oddities, there's also some from earlier on in the page. With quotes, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Out of quotes, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Happening in IE, Chrome, and Edge.

not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    It looks it only works for the first spoiler in a post, with every one after that showing as ellipses.

    Ellipses spoilers are now completely broken as of about half an hour ago, though the traditional spoilers are still working.

    Seems like pages with ellipses spoilers also take much longer to fully load for whatever reason.

    EDIT: Okay, issue I was about to report (inability to highlight text in a spoiler) seems to have been resolved.

    here's an issue from the SE movie thread I edited out the actual spoiler contents from:
    Mr. G wrote: »
    Lars wrote: »
    herp
    derp

    For me, the first one is in the old style and works correctly and the second one is in the ... style and isn't clickable, I have to quote the post to see the contents. Is it like that for others?

    Just noticed they were fixed in the Daredevil thread.
    I think it's working...
    It does!
    But nested don't. But it's progress.

    Looks like you can still get the ellipses with nested spoilers, but that's a much smaller issue relative to what was just fixed. Yay.

    The hard work is much appreciated, you guys. I was totally gonna ask for a refund.

    I was just coming in here to start this thread. I can open the 2 spoilers with the word "spoiler" in the button but not the one with the ellipsis in Bobble's post. Happens on Chrome on desktop (49.0.2623.87 m) and iOS (not sure of version as I don't have my iPad at work).

    Spoilers don't work in PMs.

    The brackets are stripped from the first spoiler and the closing tag is deleted.

    Along those lines, spoiler tags in the reaction history aren't 100%

    if the full spoiler is below the ... (more) link, the spoiler box correctly encloses the text, but cannot be toggled on / off; it stays open

    if the spoiler is split across that link, then only the text above gets the box

    this is not an issue, per se, as the reaction history is obviously stuff that the user has responded to (or posted) and they should therefore know what's in the spoiler

    but I thought I'd mention it for the sake of completeness.

    Spoilers have apparently totally evaporated and are showing as clear text.

    Spoilers
    like this which should be spoilered but isn't or at least should be

    Yup, Daredevil thread is either filled with geese or the spoilers are broken.

    Spoiler:
    'Both' is an option too.

    X-wing thread has some craziness going on in addition to the spoilers. Not sure if the two are related.

    The old spoilers were working, but I rewrote the post today and deleted/added them back in and the new ones don't work.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    Spoilers are broken sitewide, I'm talking specifically about the stylesheet breaking. Thank you though.

    Spoilers seem like they are loading expanded and showing their text before they collapse. Pg 46 of the dc movie thread in dd has a nice example with the spoiler in the first post. Using chrome on a S4.

    I have a fairly inconsistent connection speed, so I've noticed that the spoiler being open while pages load problem is much more visible when my connection is slow.

    These are working now, yeah?

    I still see the red warning up top but haven't noticed any weirdness since around the night of the multiposts.

    the pages-loading-with-spoiler-open-for-a-moment thing is still happening as far as I can tell, it's just open for an eyeblink's worth of time when my connection is decent but when I occasionally have a very slow connection it stays visible for a second or so
